Birthday Present

14 posts in this topic

Had my favorite birthday present today - the time to go out and do something I enjoy without having to feel guilty about not getting my work done. Back to the grind tomorrow.

All images taken with the Canon 40D. The panoramas were taken with the 100-400L and the river shots were taken with the 17-40L.

Steve and I took a mid-day drive up the Fernberg to the Lookout Tower vista:

After work I headed down the Tomahawk to the Island River. A couple of panoramas while there:

"Manomin"

BD4-1.jpg

"Tammies"

BD3-1.jpg

Finally stopped at the Dunka River just before dark. Used a 4ND neutral density, 100 ISO, manual at f/20 and 13 seconds. NR on and MLU:

"Dunka River 1"

"Dunka River 2"

Enjoy, and thanks again to everyone who wished my a happy birthday!

By the way, the Fernberg Lookout and the Tammies were three photos stitched together, Manomin was four photos stitched together.

"Manomin", and similar spellings, is the Native American word for wild rice.

I knew that it meant wild rice (Ojibwe language), just wondering how the picture was tagged with that title??? I see the wild rice out there, just wondering who knew to call it manoomin is all. Nice picture.

Thanks again, all. Yakfisher, I waited almost 40 minutes for the sun to peek between the clouds to light up that shoreline with the dark clouds in the background. Worth the wait!

Manomin is also my favorite. You have some nice dynamic range with the light hitting the trees and the skies behind them being darker.
